Default estimate GTA IV min requirements

What's your estimate of what the system reuqirements of GTA4 to run on minimum and recommended will be?

i think minimum: AMD Athlon X2 3800+ or Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2180, 2GB RAM, 9600GT 256MB or ATi equivalent.

recommended: C2D E6300 or AMD equiv, 4GB RAM, 8800GTS G92 512MB or ATi equivalent.

to max: C2D E8400 or C2Q Q6700, 4GB-8GB RAM, 1GB 9800GTX or SLI, or Ati equiv

keep in mind that because of GTA4's scale and complexity, expect far higher-than-crysis-at-max requirements if u wanna play at full 1080p maxed out and at 40fps+

any ideas?

I don't think they'll be that high. Sure the game looks quite nice, but I don't think it will be as demanding as a nice looking FPS.

its coming in november, and in previous releases, their PC versions have always been slightly spruced up.

oh, and these specs are for playing at 1680x1050. although with the max configuration, i dont think the difference between 1050p and 1080p/1200p would do much

Recommended is probably more like:

C2D E6300 or AMD equiv, 3GB RAM, 8800GTS or ATi equivalent.

Excellent. I'll wait for the PC version then. And my rig will be better in November too.

Graphics and RAM requirments are too high. very few people would be able to play it.

Odds are it'll be a 7600, and 512MB (1GB for vista) min Proc looks good.

id say 1gb ram min. 2gb recc
some sort of c2d cpu, higher being the one they recommend
and some sort of decent gpu. not quite an 8800 though, but not far off,
